Pre-concert talk 'Photographing Music'

A one-off audiovisual blast to celebrate independent online music store Bleep’s 10th birthday, as part of Convergence – a new music and technology
series

Andrew Hung & Benjamin John Power’s tracks rang out during the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony and – after four years of silence – their self-produced Slow Focus (ATP Recordings) was one of last year’s most widely acclaimed albums.

Fuck Buttons’ music is towering, evocative and penetrating. Tonight, all your senses will be under attack, as they create a state-of-the-art multi-sensory experience with visuals specially commissioned for the occasion.

Dom Maker and Kai Campos (Mount Kimbie) present an exclusive audiovisual collaboration with Thomas Hämén and Igor Zimmerman. Mount Kimbie’s influence stretches far beyond the tiny corner of the dance music underground that birthed them. Their debut release for Warp Records, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth ‘refuses to court the mundane’ (The Line of Best Fit) with an exciting move towards live instrumentation, while remaining ‘a distinctly electronic album, and a modern one as well’ (Pitchfork).

After the show, stay until late at our free ClubStage and get lost inside Austrian producer Fennesz’s guitar and computer symphonic landscapes, paired with visuals by Berlin-based video artist Lillevan.

‘Monolithic sheets of noise shot through with otherworldly melodies’ Resident Advisor 4/5 on Slow Focus

‘There are few albums this year that offer this much space to get lost in’ Pitchfork 8.7/10 on Slow Focus

‘A journey through this type of pioneering genre-straddling electronic music will always be a captivating listening experience’ Pretty Much Amazing on Cold Spring Fault Less Youth

‘It feels like a personal triumph’ Pitchfork 7.7/10 on Cold Spring Fault Less Youth
